Calling Dr. Cheik Anta Diop one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, Prof. Yaa Lenge Ngemi spoke to the descendants of Africa in the southern heartland of the USA declaring that “generations of Africans everywhere are failing because we have not taught our African culture to our people.” Prof. Ngemi was in both Alabama and Georgia to drum up support for Africans to learn the Pan African vision of Dr. Diop that African culture is the basis for the political and economic unity and empowerment of African people, globally.
He was also there to rally support for the full liberation of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Prof. Ngemi is an African activist from the Congo, and the translator and master teacher of Dr. Cheik Anta Diop’s book “Civilization or Barbarism.” He recently wrote the book “Genocide in the Congo/Zaire in the name of Bill Clinton� �” On the issue of the Congo, Ngemi said he is thankful for the recent development in the DRC with the involvement of the United Nations with African nations pushing militias and mercenaries from the Congo. He is urging all to continue advocating for the Congo by pressing the U.S. government to support Congolese participation in controlling their own government and wealth of resources.
Prof. Ngemi was also in the Black South as part of the World African Diaspora Union (WADU) Pan African Movement and the OAU/AU 50th anniversary campaign to unify the African Diaspora as a cultural, political and economic union with Africa. The WADU work for the BaCongo or DRC is mainly a continuation of WADU co-founders Elombe Brath, chair and founder of the Patrice Lumumba Coalition (1960’s) and Rev. Dr. Ndugu T’Ofori-Atta. Dr. Atta served in the BaCongo region as a minister and instructor of liberation theology (1950’s). WADU was organized in 2007 to continue this type of work with a renewed and robust Pan African leadership structure to strengthen Africa and African people, in the 21st century.
As part of the 50th anniversary of the liberation movement and the March on Washington, WADU is supporting the OAU/AU Pan African and African Renaissance (PAAR) vision for a long term plan for an integrated, peaceful and prosperous Africa. However, WADU is also pushing for an immediate Pan African government envisioned and espoused by the Honorable Marcus Garvey, President Kwame Nkrumah and other leaders like Emperor Haile Selassie, President Sekou Ture, Dr. John Henrik Clarke, and Ambassador Dudley Thompson. For WADU, only an immediate Pan African government can empower Africa to halt efforts to re-colonize Africa, thus stopping the militarization of Africa, genocidal wars, global land grab and the new scramble for African resources. Minister Menelik called for increased support for nations such as Zimbabwe as one of the models for Pan Africanism and highlighted the governments of France, the USA, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria as some of those working against Africa’s interests.
